Installing Turbosmart E-boost Street

Hi all, I have a couple of questions regarding installing the above boost controller and was hoping I could get some guidance...

Firstly with wiring it up, there is a power wire which needs to be connected to a 12v power source that is switched through ignition. I'm wondering where/what original wire currently in the car I could splice this into?

Secondly regarding the plumbing of the solenoid, the picture below shows how to run the hoses to and from the solenoid. I am wondering whether the 'Pressure only to port 3 of solenoid' hose can be ran from the inlet manifold rather than the turbo housing? I ask as I don't have a fitting coming off of the housing. If I can't run the hose from the inlet manifold and instead have to drill and tap the turbo front housing to run it from there then so be it, but I'd rather avoid having to take that off if I can get away with it.

I'm sure I'm not the first person who has fitted one of these boost controllers to a VL so any help would be greatly appreciated! Also, if anyone has some suggestions on a subtle place to mount it, that'd be great. Cheers!
